Does anyone have the Toytota brand visors or another brand? I hear the snap in can cause problems & Toyota won't do warranty work on the windows if you use the snap in.

I love my in-channel vent visors. Great when raining or snowing (like today) & you can open the window a few inches without anything coming in.

I put on the in-channels & not any problems. At first there was some rubbing, but not anymore.
I bought mine on ebay. 4 windows with shipping around $40. Toyota wanted $100, screw that. It is just a piece of plastic. I don't see any brand being better than another.

Have had my inchannels for about 5 months now. Love them especially being able to crack the windows without a big increase in wind noise.

i voted to keep them on but i would paint them to match the truck. JMO

well i didn't notice that they were in-channel, may skip the idea bout painting them since you would have a little black ine there.

I went to check on tinting my windows darker yesterday, and the guy told me 35% is as much as I can go on the front windows in Kansas (which I already have). But, if I put an out of state tag on it he would tint them darker.... don't wanna get pulled over for window tint though.

I picked the visor look but I do not feel strongly either way. I would need to see a zoomed out picture to get a better feel for how the visors look compared to the whole vehicle.

I put the visors on. Here's a pic zoomed out so you can see the entire truck better.

You might try painting them body color if you are undecided.
